Death of the Royalty
It was a dark and
stormy night and Princess Jessica was walking toward
the stairwell up to the
attic with her brother Prince jack. They reached the
last step and
turned the knob. The door opened creakily. Inside it was
black, except for the eerie shadows. The moon was casting light on all
the old stuff.
They suddenly heard a thump,
thump, thump, thump. "Help me!" an eerie
voice moaned. "Help
me!" they heard again. They decided it was their
it started again.
Princess Jessica said, "Did you hear
"Yes," answered Prince Jack
"I'll try to turn on the lights," acknowledged
Jessica. Click! Click!
Click! Click! went the lights, but
no lights came on. Jessica was
vigorously turning the light switch on
and off. No lights!
Jack turned on the lights in
another room and luckily found a flashlight.
They turned on the
flashlight. A figure was standing in the mirror. It was
young woman wearing a white silk gown and she said, "Good-bye. I'm
sorry it had to end this way."
Just then, a
figure stepped out of the shadows. It had one eye and bared
teeth. Jessica and Jack were horrified. They tried to run, but
it was as if their legs had turned to jelly. They tried to scream, but
couldn't even talk. The monster stepped slowly toward them, still
golden teeth. The kids started to drag themselves with
their upper body
strength. Swiftly the monster picked them both up
with he superstrengthened
body. They tried to scream, but their moans
were carried away by the wind.
Jessica fainted. Jack wiggled and
squirmed, not making it any easier. Jack
knew it was up to him to save
them both, but how could he? Then he had an
"Excuse me, sir, but we are already dead. We were
trying to find more
dead people to haunt the castle
"How do I know you're telling the truth?" the
monster grunted curiously.
"Well, how 'bout we all
go haunt the castle?" Jack said.
"Okay!" the monster
"We'll take upstairs and you can take
downstairs," decided Jack. The
monster let go of them just as Jessica
woke up. The monster headed
downstairs and jack informed Jessica what
happened. The two of them escaped
from the castle and were never seen
